Wofford (12-4, 4-0 SoCon) at UNC-Greensboro (14-2, 3-0 SoCon) – 7:00 PM EST (ESPN3)
Despite the strong start that Furman has had to the beginning of their season in the SoCon, tonight’s game is for all intents and purposes the first leg of the conference co-leaders with the Wofford Terriers playing the UNC-G Spartans in historic Greensboro Coliseum. Wofford set up a strong noncon schedule and stumbled out of the gate with losses at home to North Carolina and on the road against Oklahoma, Kansas and Mississippi State. They did win at South Carolina, but unfortunately had to cancel a game with Stanford due to travel difficulties. They’re off to a 4-0 start in league play, although the only notable win of the four is a blowout win at home against The Citadel. Fletcher Magee averages 18.1 points a game, including 4 made three-point shots per game (at a 37.9% clip).
UNC-Greensboro has also taken care of business in the games they’ve been expected to win – however, their most noteworthy wins so far have come at Delaware and against Louisiana Tech (also on Delaware’s campus). Their only losses are at LSU and at Kentucky, although they were competitive in both games before falling apart at Kentucky in the 2nd half. Their biggest win in SoCon play was at Samford – the Bulldogs have also been a pleasant surprise for the league so far this season. Francis Alonso leads the Spartans with 18.4 points per game and 2.6 assists per game.
